HBA assistant not found - NFS only


hi there,

It had been sometime since the last time I had this issue on a NFS SDU install,

linux host RH 5.4

NFS only

iscsi is not installed

sg module is loaded (although it shouldn't be required)

root@chicldb08a# snapdrive snap disconnect -fs /test1
0001-877 Admin error: HBA assistant not found. Commands involving LUNs should fail.

Can anyone refresh my memory here, how do I get this sorted ?

there aren't any luns involved only NFS.



Can you try starting the iscsi service then restarting SDU daemon?

There were a few burts showing dependency of the iscsi service to be on for NFS environments.

Is it only the snap disconnect that gives you an error?
